yep! i love it entirely! (except side skirts!) They are only okay because the front bumper compliments the side skirts very well..

Yeah those probably are the integrated eye lids! Just like on the CS and the new 7

im kinda banking on a black lines option still going to be available for the LCI.. why? cuz I believe the black lines sold well.. BMW started offereing inside optional parts. Look at the 1series.. so many "performance parts offered". I am certain that NEW "performance parts" will be offered for the e90 LCI.

I like everything, including the side skirts. In fact, I actually think the new side skirts are a great improvement. Because they are straight now the car looks sharper, more aggressive, better planted on the road.

New front + M-tech + blacklines (hopefully) + old mirrors + 19's = Big improvement over current car similarly equipped!
How are you gonna do blacklines on a notched taillight...would look silly to me?

No reflectors on the fenders. The LEDs in the front and rear and the "graphics" on the headlights. the 3 LEDs on the light corners are cued by the 5er. Sweet

Sick just sick!

still don't like the overall look of the E90. im not sure what it is but i just find the E90 to be real ugly, front and back.. the new one is a bit better, but not really.. i think they need a fresh new design on this. Even though E46 is very dated looking but, to me, it still looks better.. just my .02

I thought the same thing from this photo, but it's just that the dividers next to and between the LEDs are mirrored, making it seem like there are more LEDs in there shoved at odd angles. It's easier to see when the LEDs are off, like in this photo.

I like everything about the update except the new hood and lower front bumper. I'd like to see shots of the 2009 E90 M3, to see if it also is updated.

It's so much better looking that I don't think any comparisons should even be drawn. If I'd held out for a year, I woulda sprung for one of these instead of the e92.

And I usually hate all-red taillights. Like I usually despise 'em.
